Are rumors true that Apple will release a new iPod Touch? We sure hope so!

Apple is rumored to launch a new iPod Touch later this year, but why? The rumor mill has been buzzing that Apple is gearing up to release a new iPod Touch this fall to celebrate 20 years since the iPod lineup launched. That may not sound too exciting for many, especially since most people own smartphones that can do more or less the same thing as an iPod Touch, but with the bonus of a cellular modem. However, I think it's a great idea for Apple to launch a new model. And even though I'm an Android kinda guy, a new iPod Touch is something that I've wanted for years . I'll start by saying that I've never owned an iPhone and probably never will. That said, I've owned quite a few iPod Touch models, up until the 6th-generation, which was released in 2015.

Black iPhone 13 Pro will reportedly be a lot darker than Graphite and Space Grey Apple products

Back in March, it was reported that the iPhone 13 Pro lineup would include a matte black color option and the same sources are now back with more details. In a new video, YouTuber Filip Koroy shares with us a couple of exclusives about the iPhone 13 series. The intel comes from leaker Max Weinbach. The iPhone 13 will allegedly come in a black hue that would be much darker than iPhone 12 Pro and Pro Max's Graphite paintjob. To give us a sense of the shade, the video says it will be close to the Hex color code 121212. The Space Grey color offered for iPads and MacBooks is the darkest hue available on Apple devices right now and iPhone 13's Pro's black colorway is seemingly going to be even darker. According to previously reported information, the option will be borderline black and it will have a matte finish. The Pro models are also rumored to feature a new stainless steel coating to reduce smudges and fingerprints. Apple always offers a black or near-black iPhone

Could the Galaxy S21 FE be Samsung's first Fan Edition phone with S Pen support? What you need to know A new rumor suggests Samsung plans to position the upcoming Galaxy S21 FE as the follow-up to the Galaxy Note 20.

Samsung is rumored to unveil the Galaxy S21 FE at an Unpacked event in July or August, alongside its next-gen foldables.

The Pixel 4 may allow photography enthusiasts to do something they've never been able to do before with a smartphone camera: astrophotography.
